Former Cast Members Returning For 'American Horror Story: Apocalypse'

American Horror Story is welcoming back A LOT of former cast members for its next season. At this point, the better question is who ISN'T joining American Horror Story: Apocalypse?

For the upcoming eighth season, American Horror Story: Coven cast members Lily Rabe, Taissa Farmiga, Gabourey Sidibe, Frances Conroy, and Stevie Nicks were recently added to the lineup. They'll be joined by previous Coven actors Sarah Paulson, Emma Roberts, Kathy Bates, Evan Peters, and Jessica Lange, who is making her big return after leaving the series in American Horror Story: Freak Show. Season 8 will be the first time that a majority of the Coven cast will be reunited together on screen.

It's been long since revealed that Season 8 of American Horror Story will be a crossover continuation of Coven and American Horror Story: Murder House (the first in the series). Since the AHS anthology seasons were revealed to be in the same timeline, many characters have previously made appearances in multiple seasons. In some cases, the same actor would portray more than one character in the same, like Sarah Paulson portraying three roles in American Horror Story: Roanoke.

As a HUGE fan of both Murder House and Coven, I'm so excited for this season! I love both previous seasons because the stories hooked me from the beginning, the characters are full of personality, and the plots brought a lot of drama. I can't wait to see how the show manages all of the different characters and how they handle the actors portraying more than one character.

Here is the list of all the returning actors who are currently confirmed for Apocalypse:

Sarah Paulson
Evan Peters
Taissa Farmiga
Jessica Lange
Lily Rabe
Frances Conroy
Gabourey Sidibe
Emma Roberts
Kathy Bates
Adina Porter
Cheyenne Jackson
Billie Lourd
